Hello guys,

I must admit that the forum is really useful and I've found solutions for lots of problems I've faced in work or at home. Anyway here is something I couldn't find any help and I hope discussing with you guys, will be in real help of me.

I have problems with PPPOE connection, which I need to access Internet (my ISP have a VPN gate and I'm connecting to it with the MS build in PPPOE connection). For three days I'm facing with the following.

I'm working in Internet for 20-30min and then the PPPOE connection drops, but in My Network places (or at the taskbar) it is indicated as Connected. Right clicking on the connection and selecting the Disconnect button, can't help. But after I restart the computer everything is in order for 20-30min and then this whole thing repeats again.

I doubt if the problem is with my ISP, because I have and a laptop, which is also connected to Internet and I'm using the same ISP, and there is no problems with it.

So that's why I think that this is software related problem and I need your help.

P.S. I forgot to mention that I'm running XP Pro with SP2 and patched with the latest MS updates.

Thank you

Greets,
Meto

Thanks Eddie,

Well I finally removed the problem by reinstalling Windows. So I guess that there is no other solution :(
